Praise for those who bring Hope
HOPE Kitchen is an organisation offering a very important service and all provided by volunteers.
At lunchtime every day, Hope (Help Our People Eat) Kitchen provides meals for 36 to 40 people.
At teatime it all starts again, providing meals for 15 to 20 people.
But it’s not just food Hope provides. It provides company for many people who live alone. Company is so important - a friendly smile, just someone to listen, someone to talk to, someone to share a very lonely life with.
This service is so important, with volunteers reaching out to some 93 people in the community. Hope is their contact with the outside world.
After dinner cash bonus
Former Prime Minister David Cameron is moving into the after- dinner speaking circuit, making as much as £120,000 a time.
Former Chancellor George Osborne stands to earn more than £1.8 million in his first year out of office – from his six jobs, including editing London’s Evening Standard, and he is still a full-time MP.
This is simply capitalism at its worst. Two people who told the common worker of this country that ‘times ahead would be hard’.
They told us austerity was a condition we would all have to live with.
Political personalities such as Cameron, Osborne and former PM Tony Blair would not know austerity if it hit them in the face.
The fact is I congratulate our volunteers who work in the community so that those less fortunate than ourselves benefit from their help.
